Guess what? You (yes you) are funny! You just may not know it yet.
In this interactive and fun program, you will learn the fundamentals of great improvisation and then use the ideas of improv comedy to access, develop, and incorporate your own natural humor into your presentations.
This program is NOT an improv comedy class. It is an interactive session where you will play improv games designed to help you discover your natural humor and allow you to practice ways of quickly adding humor to your programs that is authentic and natural for you.
If adding humor to your programs is important to you (as it should be) then be sure to attend this highly entertaining, highly interactive, very fun, and content-packed program!
By the end of this program, participants will be able to:
Use three techniques to quickly add humor to their presentations without writing “jokes.”
Access their quick-thinking and creative skills to flow with the unexpected with humor and speed.
Quickly generate humorous content that is authentic to you – even if speak on a “dry” or “serious” topic.
